A Comparison  of Dividends  as Against

of her olub topsail, Jib topsail and tore- i the original nomination
To the Editor of Tho Minor:
Sir:���Having roud several articles in
the local papers, purporting to bo written by minors, '.nine managers and
others, on the eight hour clause in the
Mines' Inspection Aot, whioh was introduced by Mr. Hunio during tho last
session of the Legislature nud which
has uow become law.
It may porhaps interest somo of your
readers to look at the matter from the
standpoint of a British shareholder. I
see that some newspapers propound to
thoir reudera tho tact that, because
ono or two minos���wbich thoy select
out of some twenty or thirty working
iii tho sumo distriot���have pnid dividends, thoreforo miners should have
an increase in thoir wnges or should
Share in the profits of the mine in
which they work.
Now any minor, who baa tho capability and takes tho trouble to think,
Will seo that if all the minos in suy
thd Slocan, woro brought in to hotchpot, thereby making iniuo owners und
niiuora share and share nliko, tho miu
era would find themselves out of pocket
to an alarming extent.
Owing to the fajt that mines in
Kootenay are only iu process of development, the profits from the dividend
paying mines are out of all proportion
to tho money that has been spent on
development and which has in return
given no returns. Por example, one
company in which I am interested haB
paid somo $830,000 to miners aud prospectors in the Provinco and its hopes
of ever paying a dividend are practically nil. Another company I know
which baa puid some $200,000 to minora and prospectors for di'Tcront properties aud for their development is
buoyed up with hope of a small dividend from one of its properties and
this aftor threo years work. Another
company in wbich I am pecuniurly
interostoo has during some two years
scent e'nut $100,000. all of which has
gone in about equal parts into the
pockets of minora and prospectors.
Tbis company has but ono out ot sev-
oral properties which, with the ex-
. ouditureof another $100,000, will
probably pay   a dividend.
None of those companies expect a
really adequate return tor thoir money,
at any rate, for some years to oome.
There are many companies that I know
for a fact have spent large aums iu
the same way, and the money so spent
bus gone into the pockets of the miner
aud prospector without any present
hone of any return. Again thore are
companies who, having risked large
sums in buying and developing mining properties, now, aftor some two or
three years of patient waiting, ore bo-
ginning to hopo that perhaps they may
get a small return.
Tho miners during these years hnvo
cover uomplninod nud huve acted in
unison with the employers in every respect, willing (I mean tho miners not
tho talkers) to do thoir 10 hours a day
work for $3.50 or $3 as the caso may he
Then what does the new Miuister of
Mines, Mr. Hume, do? He pu8sea n
clause through the Houso, not for the
benefit of the compauiea who are paying their money out to the miners, not
for the heneflt of the miners who did
not want the clause, but for the benefit of tho officers of tho miner's who
guaranteed bis election if ho would do
their bidding. Naturally employers
nro unwilling to pay the same rate of
wnges for eight h.rars as they did for
ton hours work. It is absnrd to say
that men can do as much aatiafao
tory work in eight aa tbey can in 10
houra, with an hour out of the mine
in the middle of the day. Would any
sane person w.io witnessed the drilling contest last Saturday assort that
Burns nud his partner could havo
drilled ns ninny inches in eight minutes aa they did in the allotted
10 minutes. Equally abaurd ia it to
think that Kootonay mine owners will
pay a higher rate of wage than any
othor mining district in the United
States or Canada. The sooner tbo miners recognize that thoir employers huve
ho desire to act unfairly with them,
and realize the faot that this present
trouble has arisen, from the irresponsible action of an ignorant Government playing into the hands of a union,
which tho minors support with no
benefit to themselves, the better it
will be not only for them but foreveiy
one else resident, or having interests in
the district.    I am sir, yours truly

London, July 0. ���Mr. Chamberlain,
Secretary of State for the Colonies,
made aporsonal stntement in the House
today with referonce to the comment
whioh has been aroused by the fact
that, though a shareholder iu the Niger Company, he hud voted in favor of
the transfer of that corporation's territory being given. Mr. Chamberlain
said in effect that his interest in the
Niger Company was ��3,000 and that
when the quoatiou of revocation of tbe
company'a charter nrose, he asked
tho Marquis of Salisbury and his colleagues in the Government to relieve
him of any participation iu the negotiations.
In accordance with bis request the
negotiations have been entirely in the
hands of Sir Michael Hicks-Bench,
chancellor of tho Exchequer. Mr.
Chamberlain added that bo hnd voted
for the resolution of Sir Michael Hick-
Boach, which was only formal, but thnt
he would not participate iu any future
discussion or vote. If, Mr. Chamher-
Iniu concluded, ho voted as a shore-
holder be would vote against tho transaction.

Victoria, July 0. ���(Special)���Until
the Lieutenant-Governor loturus from
Atliu nothing can bo done in connection with tho clearing up of tho political atmosphere Mr. Martin still says
he will not resign but it must be
becoming painfully upparent to him
that he has no following and the hour
of bis downfall is not far off. The
arrival of Sir Hibbert Tupper on tha
scone starts afrosh the rumors that he
is to take a prominent part in tbe
straightening out of tbo tangle. The
fact that he has no exouse whatever
for his hasty departure from Ottawa at
a time wheu tho Yukon chargea and
the Manitoba election frauds���two
thinga iu which be was very prominent���hns lent color to the rumors that
it was thu crisis here that caused his
flight westward. It he is the Moses
that is to lead the Province out of the
political widemess he is keoping it
very quiet but the rumors about him
aro most persistent.
ACCORDING TO VANCOUVER.
Vancouver, July 0.���The request of
Premier Somlin to Attorney-General
Martin to resign ;md the letter's refusal is the great topic of conversation
here. Martin is in Victoria and,
with his friends, is walking around
with a smile on his face. ' There are
many spoculations as to the general
possibilities. It is dunned that Hume,
Minister of Mines.has.for a long time,'
being desirous of lesigning, and authoritatively stnted that Cottons wiBh
wus to have Higgins and Helmcken
ua Miuister of Mines and Attorney-
General, respectively. The Martinite
papers say that it is Sir Hibbert Tupper, who nrrived here tonight, who is
Cotton's choice as the chief legal adviser of the Crown.
It uppenrs tha' the Vancouver 00m-
mitteo, who curriod on the tight in
favor of grunting tbe Ludgate mill site

factor in bringing about tho present
ciisia. They were among Martin's
cbiof supporters in Vancouver, und
they told him he must bring on a
crisis, as it wns a mutter of his standing or fulling with them. Thus Martin went, to Victoria laat Friday for
the definite purpose of bringing matters to a head.
At tho Cabinet meeting on Saturday
ho brought up tho Deadmnu'a Island
matter, insisted on immediate aotion
and spoke vehemently in connection
with the stand taken by the other

action alone, apart Irom many expressions of contempt on Martin's part aa
to the leadership of Somlin. The feeling here is thut a geueral election is
bond to come very soon.

NELSON DAILY MINER,  FRIDAY. JULY 7, i8q9.
WAS IT SUICIDE?
MESSAGE FOUND IN  A  BOTTLE
YESTERDAY.
MjBteriouB Discovery  Made  by a
Near the OP.E Wharf on
Kootenay Lake.
Boy
Mr. Tommy Gallon wna fishing from
the 0. 1J. K. wharf when lio saw u
lienr bottle with a wooden cork in il
mine floating down tho current. The
battle waa curried by a baok eddy
ngnlnat the wharf and Mr. Toniniy,
lludiuR tlie fish 1 .mi-) too greedy,
nmnsflil himself by ti.sliintt out tho Initio. With a boy's curiosity he naturally
polled out tl'.ecork an I theu saw inside
n piece nf white paper and a rod ticket
which wero closely written on with u
per-oil. These ho carefully peruser"
and lii-ought tc Tho Minor olllco thereby showing phenomenal good taste.
H'-r; ifl the writing word for word :
"July I.  lSDI), Nolson, 13. 0.
"When this bottle is disoovored my
soul shall be in eternity. To you these
words aro ashes, but to me, they are
burning coals. lama Strang! r hear
(sic) ir town from Rossland, 13. tl,
and l.avt no friends, no relatives nor
no religion. I once was a happy,
wealthy man. hut its not what yon
wen, its what yon are today, so have
resolved to drown my sorrows along
with my wretched soul. Too oansi
of this is not insanity but o\< ing to a
girl whom 1 have loved aud Iosi -who
resides in Rossland. I need not mention her name. She is woll known.
Ood bless her. My dying request is
for her nor lo mingle with evil associates as thev make the sluggish pool of
i it's life, hot rather witn good people
which make ;he dear glassy lake.
"GEOi'Gli; G. GORDON."
It is hard tc sny whether this is a
fake or the   painful,   mi erable truth.
The worloly minded would take it
for grautoi th-t no reasonable being
would drown himself in glassy lakes
when stronger waters may be had.
Moreover it is easy to love a girl but
uot everyone has the luck to lose her.
Theoretically man is monogonious:
praotically hois essentially polygamous
though ho has not tho courage to say
so. Men are more often brought to the
verge of self destruction by the eoutin
ned existence jf the erstwhile loved
one.
But the sentimentalist will at ouoe
scent a roniinee, the tragedy of Tristan and Isolda re enacted, the old story
of false love and blighted life.
It is .ducevely to he hoped, however,
that the whole affair is a jest and
t Kit the writer.be his name George G.
Gordon or uot, is ere now back in
Rossland with 1113 inamorata.
This is the most probable solutiou of
the mystery whioh has already created
quite ii small stir in the City.
oompotitor, the highest seoro of course
winuiug. Should the winner lie fortunate next y<nr the oup will become
his own property. The cup can now
be seen in Mr. Fatenande'e window.
Tho design, in excellent taste, is a
plain silver bowl, standing on three
rifles piled in military stylo, aud en-
gravod with the namo of tho club and
of the donor. The cup is mado of sterling silver aud is fixed on au ebouy
pedestal.
Mr. Patenaude is the originntor of
the design. The cup was manufactured expressly for him by Ellis & Co.,
of Toronto.
IS TO GET A WHIPPING.
The oharge of Clarence E. Chase
against the young boy, Tallie Parr,
was disposad of by Police Magistrate
Crease yesterday morning in the polieo
oourt. Parr stole a two gallon jug
hulf filled with cider, from Chase's
placo on Hall street, emptied the cider
and took tho jug to Tamblyn's liquor
stole and sold it, for 50 cents.
Parr confessed his wrong doing to
the Magistrate and the latter upon
Stirling Pari- the father agreeing to
givo his sou a whipping released Tallie
on the conditional soutonce, that he
was to appear and receive juudgment
whenever called upon aud in the meantime to keep the peace and be of good
behavior. Parr aud his son entered
into recognizances of |200 each to this
end. Somo of the boys of Nolson have
beeu very troublesome and many
things have been lately reported to the
police. Any more lads appearing in
the court will after this warning, be
severely dealt with.
a more cheerful nature. A large crowd
gathered in the hopo of witnessing her
arrival and departure, nut the gendarmes cleared tPe streets adjacent to
tlie prison nnd tho ^erowd caught only
a passing glimpes of her as she passed
in a closed carriage to the resideuce of
Madame Goddam.
ENGLISH  HOUSE   OF COMMONS.
London, July 6.���The House of
Commons this morning roiecied the
amendment to the Loudon government
hill proposed by Leonard Henry Courtney, Unionist member for the Hodniin
division of Cornwall, permitting the
election of women as councillors, by
a vote of 346 against I��� iu favor. The
House of Lords amendment providing
for the exclusion of women from the
office of councilor was then formally

TRANQUILITY   REIGNS.
LOCAL  AJND  PERSONAL
A telegram was sent to Rossland
asking it any person of tho name of
George (i. Gordon was known there.
The reply received after midnight was
as follows :
"Mo man of the namo known in

Very like a whale !
NELSON STREET IMPROVEMENTS
Wiiat Has Been Dono in   the   Way   of
Grading, Sidewalks, and Drainage.
The iruprovementes that havo been
mado in the City this past spring an
many and varied. Private enterprise
has eretcted fine business blocks, scores
of handsome residences and enlarged
nud rohnilt many more. The public
improvements have had hard work to
keep up with those of private inivid-
uals, but the board of woiks has done
wonders in opening up new streets
grading others and -enerally keeping
the public thoroughfares up to Die
proper standard.
Since tho beginning of April last
sidewalks havo   been laid ns   follows:
Twelve foot board walks on portions
of Vernon and Ward streets; ten font
walks on Uaker, Ward, Kootenai
streets; six foot walks ou Ward, Carbonate, Victoria, Josephine, and
Silica slret ts ; a four foot walk on Laki
Street| three foot walks on Silica.
Kootenay, Gore, Robson and Innen
streets. Besides theso new sidewalk*
crossings have beeu placed at many
corners.
the water system hns also been extended throughout many pnrts nf tin
City. On Gore street a four inch main
has been laid from Josephine to Kootenay; on Stanley; one from Go ie to
half a block past Houstou ; on Hons-
JOU, from Stanley to Ward; on Victoria, from Stanley to Palis; en Lake
street from Cedar to Park; on Front
street to connect with the Hume Addi
tion. ; on Silica from Cedar to Park;
on Carbonate, from Cedar to Park and
en Mill fro���, Cedar to Pnrk. A six
inch ma:n has been laid from Stanley
re Josephine on Vicioria. Eight hydrants have also been placed iu various
Parts of the Oity.
The sewerage system hos been extended by a.OOO feot and ovor two
wiles yet remain to be lnid.
Grading bas beon dono all over the
���Hy. and new streets opened up in all
directions.
Iu view of the natural obstacles to
do overcome in grading aud opening
np the streets tbo progress made is
"larvolW.

St. Saviour's Chapter of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew's held their regular ruouthly meeting last night.
There will be a full practice of the
lacrosse olnb this evening to prepare
tor the proposed trip to tbe Coast.
Mr. D. Carley of the Economist, left
for Knslo yesterday, on an errand
win th will, it is hoped, prove of lasting interest to him.
Mr. Moore of Tho Tribune, had the
misfortune to dislocate his shoulder
on Tuesday uight. Tho injured limb
was set by Dr. Symouds and tho pa-
tient is now rapidly recovering.
Rev. W. W. Stewart, of the Seventh
Day Adventists, has been iu towu for
soveral days. Mr. Stewart loaves
shortly for Rossland to hold service,
but will return to Nelson in about
four weeks.
Mr. Stanloy received yesterday a
consignment of Quebeo tobacco in the
natural leaf. A sample was tried by
a representative of The Miner and,
though possessing a distinctive flavor
of its own, was entirely satisfactory.
Another bear story. A gentleman
was visiting the cemetery yesterday
and had been selecting a plot of ground
there when he suddenly saw a larga
brown hear within 20 yards of him.
He shouted loudly and Bruin speedily
decamped.
A would-be burglar entered the
bouse of Mr. Blake Wilson, on Vernon
street, on Wednesday night, while Mr.
Wilsor. was away. Mrs. Wilsou saw
tbe man and called out, whereupon the
intruder fled. Blake would prefer
him calling when hu is at home.
Dr. Hall has been ollicially notified
of his appointment as medical officer
for tbo Hall Mines smelter. The
Oanada Book aud Drug Co.. Will supply tho necessary drills and, in ull
probability the patients will be treatid
at tho Kootenay Lake General hospital.
Mr. Robert Jaffray, managing director of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Com
oauy, president ot the Toronto Globe
Company, and a capitalist well known
all over Canada, arrived from tbe oast
yesterday and is registered at the
Phair. He is accompanied by Mis.
nud   Miss Jaffray.
The Rossland Lacrosse club are anxious to have the Nelsou team visit
their City for a return game, in order
lo wine off tho 8���0 lambasting Rossland received here on July 1st. Ross-
land's team will bo considerably
jtrengthened in ihe meantime, but in
order to defeat the strong Nelson team
it will be necessary to send further
for "ringers" than was dono in the
case of their hose team. If tho game
is not played in tho meantime it will
be otie of tho features of the Rossland
Lai or Day demonstration.
Noi-tbport refused (o let Rossland's
imported aggregation of runners scoop
up the prize iu the hub and hub race
on tho fourth, says the Rossland Record : "Tbe Rossland hose team wauted
ro go to Northport for the purpose of
raking part iii tho hub and hub race,
but the committee would not stand
their work, nnd telegraphed back tbat
they would have to bar them. Our
hoys offered lo take a handicap of 20
feet,but it was no go." Evidently the
record of tho Rossland team had pro-
oeetled their offer to go.
The Nelson-Slocan Law Sccioty have
tried to pass a local eight hours' bill,
affectiug the overwrought lawyers, for
the long vacation only. W. A. Macdonald, Q. C, objects to the principle
of onforced short hours of labor when
fees are to ho earned and has refused
to consent to the passage of tho Act.
It is more than probable tbat ho alone
of all the Nelson laywers cau find
enough work to keep him employed
more than oight hours, saving, of
course, his partner, wbo, it is currently
understood, works nt least Iii hours out
of the 2-4.
Paris, July (!. ���A despatch received
hero today from a semi-official agency
at Sofia characterizes as absolutely
false the statement published abroad
on the subject of disturbance at Sofia.
Perfect tranquility and tho most
complete order reigns at Sofia and
throughout the couutvy. It is added
that Prince Ferdinand started yesterday for Eeudinsgrad with his mother
and other members of his family.
YELLOW   FEVER   ON BOARD.
New York, July 6.���The United
Slates transport McLellau arrived
today from Sautingo aud was detained

transport reports that throe of the passengers have yellow fever. Two of
these aro cabin passengers. One is Miss
Clendenuing, daughter of the surgeon

from yellow fever is reported.

in the hands of the Filipinos, returned last night. Chairman Del Rio, of
tba commission said tbat the release
of all the prisoners bad been practically arranged for. but it would be
necessary to consult the Spanish government before the agreement coud be
ratified. He declined to gne the terms
of arrangement or say whether these
contemplated a ransom. He asserted,
however, that Aguinado has already
issued a decree for tne release of civilian officials and the sick soldiers. The
commissioners with tbe remnant of
Spanish garrison of B er, on the coast
of Lnzon and a nnmber of civilian
prisoners were escorred by Fiiipino
